Assistance for Victims of the Civil War
Malteser International has launched a campaign for helping victims of the recent civil war in Sri Lanka.
In the north of the country, with the local partner Sarvodaya, it has organised the distribution of food, personal hygiene kits, clothing and anti-mosquito nets for internal refugees forced to take shelter in transit camps.
Despite these operations and other support actions, the situation is deteriorating. There is a lack of drinking water and food and a very present threat of hunger and epidemics.
